"After the pharaoh of Egypt captured the city of Gezer, what did he do with it?"

...

Uhh...


OK, let's think about this now:
"Which of the seven vials caused the beast's kingdom to be plunged into darkness??"

Aren't you trying to be accurate? I didn't recall any of the trivia questions posted as being originals from the other evening!

So, what DID the pharaoh do after he captured the city of Gezer?

You better know this!

Hi Miss Tattletale,
While we like to be accurate whenever possible, in this case it just wasn't practical. We couldn't remember what questions were being asked when and we weren't too keen on digging through a few hundred cards to find the original questions that were asked that night. So we cheated just a little bit and selected a few questions from the game which seemed to fit the pictures.

Sometimes, like when trying to convert a book to a movie, the original story must be modified slightly to make it flow correctly. Josiah and I sometimes follow this practice on this blog. :-)

Kristen,
To answer your question, I'll going to quote from the Bible:

(1Ki 9:16) For Pharaoh king of Egypt had gone up, and taken Gezer, and burnt it with fire, and slain the Canaanites that dwelt in the city, and given it for a present unto his daughter, Solomon's wife.

There, now you know! Hopefully next time you play the Bible Trivia game you'll get asked this question. :-)

You have me convinced; I'll never tell tales again! I apologize for being so critical!

But as far as converting books to movies goes, you would have a hard time convincing me that the practice of modification is wise or acceptable in most cases.

Dear Repentant,
After much deliberation, the Life Through a Viewfinder staff decided to accept your apology. All is forgotten and we welcome you back to full commenting privileges. ;-)

I won't even go into the converting books to movies discussion right now. That discussion needs saved for another time and another place.
